    Finally lost my marbles

    In a moment of wanderlust and possibly epic stupidity i did a buy on a car born before yo momma! Might even be older than Jonny Wilkinson and Ken!!!

    Ta da













    Not really sure what is going to happen to it or where I'm going to keep it but first thought is a euro restomod style project

    Inspiration maybe

    Depending the direction I end up taking you might get a call. Cant decide what to do with the body, its in decent nock, the doors are solid which is a win win, liking the weathered patina on it currently but also love the ultra smart look like the red one up there ^^^^^

    Nah, that's mid 60s newfangled nonsense. Needs to be 50s or V.v. early 60s to precede me lol.
    Got to love an Amazon but you MUST either go standard mint, standard patina or tasteful hotrod. Anything else would be a sin.

    I'm thinking mild restomod Johnny.

    Sort out some areas of bodywork that need attention, sink the headlights into the wings loosing the surrounds for a cleaner line, chrome rims, lowered and leave the paint job as is. A little work on the interior but same colour scheme.

    Hope you approve

    Love the clean/no grill or bumper look. Will be doing that. Arches are terrible IMHO. Going to stay stock body and limit myself to 9j front and 11j rear with decent tyre sizing

    That estate of GMs should be your continual reference point. Fast, fit, shiny, the right height and most of all mildly understated. :Nod:
    There is such a thing as too low as you know. Saying that, I hear nothing wrong in what you proposed
